Scott Dixon finally pushed past Dario Franchitti on Sunday for the IRL points lead as the Kiwi captured the Indy Car Series Motorola Indy 300.

Dixon drove strong and fended off tough competition from the Andretti Green Drivers for his fourth victory of the season, beating Brazilian Helio Castroneves by 0.5449 seconds. The win put Scott four points ahead of Franchitti with only two remaining races in the season. With the win, Dixon swept the IRL’s three road-courses this season and put him in position to win his second series title, his first coming in 2003.
